Alleged Facebook Live Killer Reportedly Told Police He Woke Up With Murder On His Mind:
According to KSLA, Johnathan Tremaine Robinson reportedly revealed to Shreveport police Sgt. Jeff Brown that he had plans to murder his ex-girlfriend, 27 year-old Rannita “NuNu” Williams. Apparently, Robinson planned to murder Williams as he woke up from his mother’s home. Despite the fact that Williams and Robinson had dated in the past, Robinson shared that he had moved on to a new relationship with Sharika Taylor, of Houston, Texas. Prior to the deadly encounter, Robinson was in Houston with Taylor but returned to Shreveport with murder on his mind.
It appears that Williams had allegedly made fun of Taylor and this enraged Robinson. So angry, Robinson kicked in the front floor of Williams’ home and took her hostage while her brother Jamarsay Williams escaped and called police. As he took Williams hostage, Robinson forced her to apologize to Taylor on Facebook Live.

Williams Apologies To Robinson’s Girlfriend Weren’t Enough:
It appears that her apologies weren’t enough. From the video, it appears that Robinson was enraged as he paced back and forth. At one point, Robinson can be heard saying, Wanna be famous…You really think I’m worried about the police right now? as he continued to pace behind her eventually telling Williams that he was going to make her famous. Below are Williams’ final words, before her life was tragically taken.
My page has been blocked, that’s why I’m going live, Williams stated that she had to use someone else’s page. This Nunu, I’m blocked off my page. So I had to go online on —– phone. I ain’t had no intention to going live like that. I apologize to everybody
As Williams uttered her last words, she had no idea that Robinson had intentions of taking her life. In the background of the video, gun shots can be heard. Williams begs him to stop but Robinson continued to open fire. The phone drops as Robinson coldly yells, Now, b*tch! Game over!”. KSLA reports that Robinson fired close to 30 rounds from a semi-automatic rifle, including two that struck Williams in her midsection, killing the mother of three.
Police responded to a report of shots fired around 10:48 a.m. at Williams’ Shreveport, Louisiana home. When a police officer arrived to the home, Robinson reportedly opened fire onto the officer. During the standoff, Brown testified that Shreveport police did return fire, shooting out the tires of Robinson’s car, which was parked with the engine running in Williams’ driveway.
Hostage negotiators made contact with Robinson and eventually were able to enter the home. Robinson was found armed with a rifle and was arrested immediately. Williams was taken to the hospital but she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Robinson will be arraigned June 19 on one count of second-degree murder and two counts of criminal damage to property.
